Materials used: Xerox of a still from the 1961 film Madame Sans-Gene, directed by Christian-Jaque, with Sofia Loren in the title role.

Other information: This is rather prosaic, I know, as a “painting”. But, ever since I was 10, this image comes to my mind if I associate the 18th century and the word “concupiscible”, used by Sterne for Widow Wadman.  The action of this film takes place in 1789, only 21 years later than the last volume of Tristram Shandy was published, so no huge anachronism here.
